United States Second Circuit

Sheng v. MTBank Corp., 14-4467

In an employment action claiming violations of various state and federal statutes by not allowing plaintiff to work remotely when she became pregnant, the district court's judgment in favor of defendant is: 1) vacated in part as to the adoption of the jury verdict where the district court abused its discretion in admitting evidence of the reinstatement offer because the offer was, as a matter of law, not unconditional; and 2) vacated as to the disqualification order where the district court erred in sua sponte disqualifying the attorneys, because the disqualification depended on the erroneous admission of evidence relating to the reinstatement offer. The appeal is dismissed insofar as it pertains to claims under the Human Rights Law (NYSHRL) where we lack jurisdiction over appellant’s challenge to the district court’s NYSHRL ruling.
